Just off the M6 at J43 is probably not the most exciting start to a review but when one realises we have searched for a quality place to stay (just off the M6) for nearly 20 years and now have found it, this is one of the prime factors. Willowbeck Lodge is a large family home set in beautiful countryside....

My husband and I stayed at Willowbeck for our wedding. We spent the wedding weekend there with family and friends, and stayed on for an unplanned mini-honeymoon afterwards by ourselves because we loved it so much. I'm actually at a loss to describe what a wonderful place it is, so I'll try to go through it by subject. - Accommodation:...

The both of us stayed at the Willowbeck Lodge for a break this April for three nights for our wedding anniversary. John and Liz the owners are the most welcoming hosts and made our stay perfect in everyway. I would recommend people to visit and try the fantastic hospitality in very pleasant surroundings.

What a lovely place. Following good reviews on Trip Advisor we booked in here for bed and breakfast, when travelling to a family wedding in Carlisle. We were looking for a quiet country place and a bit of luxury, and that was exactly what we found. Beautiful house with luxury and good taste everywhere. Elegant surroundings, fabulous bedroom with very...

Stayed at Willowbeck Lodge for 2 nights for a short break in March. Welcoming, friendly relaxed atmosphere. Excellent food (excellent value evening meal), great wine list and excellent breakfast choice. Good locatation for exploring nearby Carlisle, a short drive from Hardrians Wall and ideal for exploring the Scottish boarders in particular Gretna Green. We were made to feel very welcome,...

We stayed for one night, but from the very warm welcome on arrival to saying goodbye the next day, we had one of the best hotel stays ever! Liz and John are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble for either of them. Our room was just perfect, overlooking the pond in front of the hotel, so peaceful and...

I stayed at Willowbeck for over a week, and the most overriding feeling was that its a home away from home. The welcome was wonderful, rooms were large and comfortable and the meals perfect for the traveller. I would recommend a stay here for either an overnight stay or for a few days.

Having had family stay at this venue before and been here for a lovely meal, we spoke to the owners to discuss using it as a venue for a wedding. We were told it was possible as they have hosted weddings before, so we met with the lady owner to talk details as we wanted to book the entire place...
